Adult Bible Fellowships

An Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF) is a learning environment which provides you with an opportunity to Live God's Word by "learning what it means and doing what it says" within a smaller, more relational setting at Calvary Church. In fact, ABFs are a great way live out several of Calvary's vision and values.

ABFs meet at 8:00, 9:15, and 11:00 every Sunday. They vary in age group and format, but all share a focus on providing their members with a chance to grow with God's people as they pursue life in Christ together. 

What is an abf?

An Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF) is a group which provides you with an opportunity to be involved, known and loved within Calvary Church. ABFs are groups of generally 15 to 100 attenders who meet together each Sunday morning at 8:00, 9:15, or 11:00. The size of these groups makes interactive learning very effective and relationships easy to form. ABF classes provide opportunities for Bible study, building relationships, prayer and service. In short, ABFs provide you with the chance to grow as a follower of Jesus Christ.

"Adult" - identifies audience

ABFs are designed to meet the needs of adults (18 and up). Many of ABFs are grouped by “stage of life” from College up to Senior Adult, but we also have ABFs that are intergenerational (spanning three or more decades of life) or address specific needs within our church body.

"Bible" - identifies Content

The Bible functions as the primary source and center of the ABFs. Faith and practice are tested by their correspondence with Scripture; therefore we will attempt to have a balanced, holistic, and practical study of God's Word. With Scripture as our centerpiece, we can disciple one another to be "doers of the word and not hearers only" (James 1:22).

"Fellowship" - identifies Atmosphere

We want Calvary to be the smallest big church around. This starts in the ABF where we are seeking to build spiritual families that care for one another, where individuals can begin to develop relationships and take steps in their spiritual journey.
